Marianne Williamson's Best Book Yet!
, January 17, 2008
I just finished reading "The Age of Miracles". Because I have read her other books, I can say, without reservation, that Marianne Williamson's heartfelt prose is better than ever and that, in this instance, you can judge the book by its beautiful and inspirational cover!
This is a deeply personal book that will resonate with baby boomers. Marianne's honesty regarding her highs and lows, her family life, her career, and, most importantly, her spiritual journey will move you in surprising ways. Her wisdom, compassion, and intellect will take you to your younger years and back, while providing you with insight, instilling you with courage, and helping you understand where you have been and where you may be going.
While reading this book over the last couple of days, I grieved for lost opportunities and love, I became more grateful for the lessons that I have learned, I became energized to take better care of myself, and I felt more thankful for my partner, parents, siblings, friends, co-workers, fellow-activists, and all I have encountered who have provided me with glimpses of the face of God.
As a spiritual leader and companion, Marianne's books have shown us the way to love ourselves, those who like us, and those who don't like us ("A Return to Love"), to pray in an uplifting, holistic, and global manner ("Illuminata"), to be engaged citizens ("Healing the Soul of America"), to live peaceful, purposeful, and hopeful lives ("Everyday Grace"), and to become our true selves ("The Gift of Change"). Now, rather than "retire" and simply fade away, "The Age of Miracles" shows us the way to "refire" so that we may use our talents, advantages, privileges, and experience to heal, lead, mentor, and create peace.
"The Age of Miracles" is Marianne's special gift to the world. It is a must read for all baby boomers, and their families, friends and acquaintances, who will be blessed by its wisdom, compassion, and love all the rest of the days of their lives.
